I have this camera since 1 year and half and I'm still suprised how it takes beautiful images.

And another GoPro video from the same area, from Sunday afternoon...(select 720p for best results)...

I really like the POV of your shot. How have you mounted your camera to get this angle?

Just below your video on your YouTube page, select the share option, then embed, then copy the embedded code. Paste it into your thread post, and the video should appear as embedded, istead of as a link.

You may have to click the A/A symbol above and to the right of the forum post editior box to get it to work.

I have the camera side mounted on my helmet with one of the standard GoPro flat adhesive mounts, and the supplied right-angle plastic mounting hardware. I find it's the best compromise between the advantages of the top of helmet mount, and the chest mounting positions....

Gopro experts please.

I'm having trouble posting videos. Also trouble using Movie Maker. I've been using my lap top and I'm not sure if it meets the system requirements. This is what I have:

Windows vista
Intel Core 2 Duo T5750
320 GB hard drive
4GB of DDR 2

This is whats required:
Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or later), Vista and windows 7
3.2 GHz Pentium or faster
Direct X 9.0c or later
At least 1 GB of system RAM
Video card with at least 256MB of Ram.

Do I meet the requirements? (I don't think so but need to know for sure).

After countless attempts I managed to get this on Youtube.

I have a Mac also but its in the shop getting up graded. I'm sure it will fix most of my current problems. Thanks

Hey I've been across thast bridge and it was just as windy then too. Nice to know things have not changed

Regarding the video, it looks fine to me.

Are the issues that it's slow to edit and upload? If so then yeah it's probably just the CPU speed and/or video card memory. But at least you can get the job done.

Yes, very windy that day. It took me 3 minutes to cross that bridge and then 3 hours to upload it on You Tube.

WOW....three hour upload!

Did that include the editing time or just the time to upload once you started sending it to YouTube?

How strong is the GoPro's 3M adhesive bases? I know they work great on the helmet but I am planning to use them on a black coated metal right between the front forks. Here is the pic of where I'm planning to put it, upside down.



Any ideas, feedback, suggestions?

It took me a while to trust the mounts that use that tape. I trust it now and I'm sure you'll have no problems.

Mount

Prep is key. Use brake cleaner or other stuff to get that spot clean and dry. I then use a clamp to holr it over night. Haven't had any fall of or be knocked off yet. Any wax or oily residue and bye bye camera...

Clean the surface with rubbing alcohol first, and the adhesive mount will be stuck under there for good.
